• Jacksonville braces for cold weather, possibility of snow flurries

    By: Brittney Donovan , Action News Jax


    The Jacksonville area is in for a cold week -- and could even see some snow flurries!

    A freeze warning is in effect for a lot of our area, and the feels-like temperatures will be in the teens and 20s.

    Arctic air with brisk winds will create dangerously cold wind chill values Monday night and Tuesday morning across all of Southeast Georgia and most of Northeast Florida.

    Frozen precipitation is possible late Tuesday night and Wednesday.

    The last time Jacksonville saw snow flurries was Jan. 8, 2015.

    National Weather Service sensors erroneously reported light snow in Northeast Florida Monday.

    The sensors were likely triggered by mist, according to First Alert Meteorologist Garrett Bedenbaugh.

    Officials are warning people to wear warm clothing to protect themselves from the cold.
